EBV test results
On 10/18/06 I had the following EBV test results:

EBV Ab, VCA, IgM.................12

EBV Ab VCA, IgG..................2747

EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab, IgG......1202

I am currently going through a process of eliminating candida by using a product called Threelac. It seems to be working because I see a lot of dead candida coming out.

After seeing the above test results, should I also be doing something to combat chronic EBV?

There is generally no specific treatment for chronic EBV.  Almost all cases only require supportive therapy.  Treatments like steroids and antiviral therapies are controversial, and there is little evidence to suggest their use in routine cases of EBV.

A referral to an infectious disease specialist can be considered for further input.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
